windlass up-down switch

Mark Pitt

One of the rubber boots covering one of the
up-down switches built into the Tigress windlass
is torn. I am not sure how to get access to
this switch and where to find a replacement for the boot.
The US distributor, Imtra, says that do not put
up-down switches on these windlasses and did not
have a replacement boot.

Also, does the round metal thing that holds the rubber boot
unscrew from outside the windass, or do I have to
open up the windlass motor housing?
